Q17024 - HOWTO: Using the ExamWRITER Templates Utility (Upgrades from v9 and Below Only!)

If you have upgraded to a newer version of ExamWRITER and would like to use some or all of the new templates available with the version, follow the instructions below to download and use the Update ExamWRITER Templates Utility. You only need to run this utility once on one computer running ExamWRITER for your changes to take effect.
